75 ILCS 16/15-10(c)
The sample ordinances under 75 ILCS 16/15-10(c), which can be used on occasions where, although the owner of a new subdivision will not object to an annexation, he will not voluntarily sign a petition. This form of an annexation will not work if there are actual voters resident on the property. However, if this is private property not yet developed, at the time the original subdivision is being laid out, the Board can pass this ordinance and the owner can receipt for the notice. Sixty days later the annexation is effected for the territory.

75 ILCS 16/15-35
Listed here is a form ordinance for annexing parts of a municipality under 75 ILCS 16/15-35 with no voters residing therein, which does not require a petition or a notice.

75 ILCS 16/15-25
Following is a form ordinance to annex a contiguous street or highway under 75 ILCS 16/15-25 and neither a petition, notice, or referendum is required.

75 ILCS 16/15-15
Finally, here is a copy of the ordinance and a notice of ordinance for the form of annexing areas as they are annexed to the city, village, town, or school district. There are some troublesome aspects to this type of annexation, being that the annexed owners have opportunities for front door referendum after they receive their tax bill or within one year of the annexation. However, these are the forms that the Board would need to pass an ordinance and then publish a notice of that ordinance within 15 days. If no back door referendum petitions are passed within 30 days, the annexation, at least temporarily, is in effect. Section 3 of the ordinance details the activities necessary including map preparation, filing, and notice.
